The festival of lights means nothing to the LTA and TP especially if it involves a rally of 50 motorcyclists

I guess the authorities aren't a huge fan of this tradition! 

In the first few seconds, large crowds have gathered on both sides of the road as a mass of motorcyclists roar through the street.

Another video showing a different perspective of this gathering captures the magical moment when the large party passes through the crowd.

Riding through the roads, a cambike manages to get a glimpse of all the bikers waiting patiently at a traffic junction just before the 'parade' starts.

However, it appears that a few of these motorcyclists might have attracted some unwanted attention from the Traffic Police (TP).

Several officers issued fines to these cyclists as they stood around in a large grass patch.

Some of these motorcyclists could be seen not wearing masks while they're waiting.

Gathering during COVID-19

While it is unclear as to why these motorcyclists are getting stopped and fined, one possible explanation could be due to the fact that this event resulted in a major gathering in public.

According to the latest COVID-19 rules in Singapore, individuals are required to wear a mask and stay at least 1 meter away from one another while in public.

Additionally, the TP has stopped motorcyclists during a similar event last year over the Hari Raya weekend.

Netizens' reactions

Upon hearing of this incident, netizens were quick to point out the difference in standards between the treatment of motorcyclists and cyclists by the authorities. Most of them did not see a problem with the event, since it was intended to spread some joy during the festive season.

While we don't know the real reason as to why the authorities have stopped these bikers, it is evident that events like this attract large crowds and could potentially be a new hot spot for the COVID-19 virus.

Point finger to other groups for what?

All these regulation now is to restrict covid spread, so now it's a competition to see who can spread more?? [laugh]

Anyway i think motorcyclist and cyclist are excused masks? Of course when stop moving and get off the bike, then must re-wear lah.

I think it is called "unlawful assembly".

https://sso.agc.gov.sg/Act/PC1871?ProvIds=P4VIII_141-

When ppl feel that they are in a big group they feel invincible, can do anything. Like Little India riot. LoL...

 

The thing with unlawful assembly is that the group must have the intention to commit a crime or carry out an activity that will destroy the peace and tranquillity of the neighbourhood. While I think there are some similarities in which this was a particularly large group of motorcyclists making loud noises, I doubt that there were any harmful or bad intentions with their parade.

They'll park somewhere and then intermingle. Should call plain clothes police and tail them. After they park and start mingling, summon them for breaching safe distancing measures. Then block all the exits ask TP and LTA to roll in and check for illegal modifications, etc. What a party.

    Watch a rear tailgate of a truck break off and whack an Audi TT on the TPE. Ouch!

    Have you ever had to carry your family’s groceries in one trip after they have been on an NTUC run? Usually, it takes two or three trips (with a trolley) to haul back all of the plastic bags but every once in a while, your parents might hit you with the “It’s fine. It’s not that heavy. You can carry all of them back with your hands.”. While you try your best to balance the hefty weight on your arms, your body might feel like it’s going to burst any second. Well, that’s what happened with this truck. On Saturday (4 Dec), a cam car caught the moment when the rear tailgate of a truck suddenly broke off the vehicle on the expressway. After snapping off, the heavy tailgate cartwheeled across the road, hitting the side of a white Audi TT. While the rest of the truck was encased by a cloud of soil, the cam car immediately came to a halt after witnessing the horrific hit. The cam driver hopes that his video will assist the white Audi TT in making an insurance claim for any damages done. How did this happen? Although this was not the first time we heard of a vehicle getting hit by some random part of another vehicle, incidents like this should not be a common occurrence. Last week, a tyre fell from a different truck and hit another vehicle on the PIE. While there were no injuries reported, the scene of a flying tyre is more than enough to traumatize a driver. Even though there are no solid details on what happened in this video, netizens were quick to speculate several possibilities. The first was that the truck driver failed to maintain his vehicle correctly and did not perform the necessary checks to ensure that his truck was safe to drive. The other possibility was that the load of soil that the truck was carrying was too heavy, resulting in the tailgate's sudden breakage. While we might not know for sure how this happened, we’re glad that nobody was severely injured from this potentially deadly incident.

    Tesla Model 3 lets a BMW 535i eat dust and showcases its insane torque at a traffic light

    According to LTA, the number of new Teslas in Singapore increased from 8 to 487 from July to Q3, 2021.  Regardless, the number of Teslas in Singapore remains small and unreported in user-submitted video platforms...until TODAY!  Warning: The video contains wheel spins, turbo spooling, engine revving, and exhaust burbling Excited? Watch the video here: The Cars Involved What Happened? The "race" took place at Orchard Road, where the BMW 535i (cam car) attempted to chase down a Tesla Model 3 Performance. Upon the traffic light turning green, you could hear the wheel spin of the BMW 535i as all 300 BHP was sent to the car's rear wheels. Meanwhile, the Tesla Model 3 Performance was almost silent, apart from the noise coming from its tyres.  Tesla's instantaneous torque coupled with its All-Wheel Drive and 473 BHP allowed it to gap the BMW 535i within seconds.  I would say that the Tesla smoked the BMW 535i, but...there isn't any exhaust system on a Tesla. How to smoke when there isn't any smoke? You could hear the BMW driver laughing to himself in defeat and telling his passenger that his BMW was no match for the Tesla.  BMW driver Could Not Swallow His Pride Moments later, both cars met at another traffic light, where they raced again. Sad to say, it was just a copy-paste of the previous race.  At this point in time, you just feel so bad for the BMW 535i driver.  Netizens' Comments Probably the only thing the BMW can win the Tesla in. That's some audacity right there. Funny sia.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    GTA Trilogy launched early in Singapore: Featuring a hysterical Mitsubishi driver, tons of traffic police and more...

    There's a distinct line between fantasy and reality.  Unfortunately, one driver simply cannot draw the line between them.  Watch how this driver continues "playing" Grand Theft Auto in the streets of Geylang: What happened?  In the dashcam video, all may seem normal at first, except for the Mitsubishi Lancer, who seems to be acting impatiently. Seconds later, two traffic police came along riding on their bikes with their blinkers on.  The first traffic police officer rode past the Mitsubishi Lancer while the other stopped at his rear.  This is where shit starts to happen. The Mitsubishi driver started reversing out of the blue, hitting the traffic police officer at his rear.  Despite being hit by the Mitsubishi, the traffic police officer still attempted to stop the car by chasing it on foot. Ignoring the impact of the accident and the commands from the traffic police officer, the driver of the Mitsubishi Lancer refused to stop. Instead, he made an illegal U-Turn and commenced his escape.  What was going on in his head vs What actually happened Close enough. The Arrest Not to anyone's surprise, the driver was arrested eventually.  How many wanted stars do you think he earned for performing this stunt of his? Netizens' Comments It is a rental car, no wonder can drive so recklessly. This law must obey no matter what🤐 Much appreciation to that traffic police officer, I hope he is recovering well!!     ----------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    This SMRT Bus has a new proximity sensor - a honking Mitsubishi Eclipse

    A bus driver fails to stay in his lane and swipes the side of a Mitsubishi Eclipse. The video starts with the cam car approaching a traffic junction as he drives down MacPherson road.  The driver promptly stops right behind a green SMRT bus in the middle lane. On the right lane, a red Mitsubishi Eclipse patiently waits for the green arrow indicator to light up. As the light turns green, both the bus and Eclipse start to move forward into the junction. The bus then makes its right turn, cutting into the path of the red Eclipse. Upset that he is unable to make his turn, the driver of the car proceeds to spam the horn at the bus, which sounds a lot like a proximity sensor. The bus driver adamantly continues to make the turn, which led to the gigantic vehicle swiping the left side of the Eclipse. The video ends with the red car finally making its turn. Reckless bus drivers Earlier this year, an SBS bus driver almost collided with another driver after making a reckless right turn at Piccadilly Junction. The driver was going through the junction as the traffic light turns amber.  Instead of stopping, the bus suddenly makes a right turn, causing the driver to swerve out of the way. While Singapore has seen its fair share of bus drivers driving recklessly, this incident raises an important question. Are our current training routines and regulations sufficient for bus drivers or should there be more implemented? Netizens’ reactions     ======== Witnessed an accident?
